As the employee unlocked a door to walk out to her car after closing, a black male dressed in all black and wearing a black ski mask approached her with his hand in his pocket as if he had a gun.

The man forced the employee back into the store, took the cash and then ran away.

He was last seen running behind the building. The employee was not injured.
